The Perceptions of Interns: A Longitudinal Case Study


In this study, the authors examined students' attitudes toward specific elements of an ongoing internship program. The study sample consisted of 351 student interns from 12 different colleges and universities. The results indicate that perceptions have remained relatively constant over the 10-year time frame studied and that internships provide a positive learning experience for the student, as well as positive results for the sponsoring university and business.
